OER Design Challenge Lesson Template

OAS and ISKME have come together to offer the OER Design Challenge, which aims to support building pathways for ICT in education across the the Caribbean, Central and South America. The OER Design Challenge is an opportunity for educators to create, remix, and share open educational materials (OER), such as lessons, activities, and games, that showcase their unique cultures, while integrating ICT. Educators are invited to join ISKME’s global OER community at OERCommons.org to begin to identify resources they can use and remix to best meet their needs, as well as create and share using digital authoring and collaboration tools.
